"The more light you allow within you, the brighter the world you live in will be."
- Shakti Gawain (via shaktilover)
"Darkness was a presence. I learned to see in it, I learned to see through it, and I learned to see the darkness of my own. I wanted to sleep and sleep and never wake up. I had lost the few things I knew, and what was here belonged to somebody else. Perhaps that would have been all right if what was inside me was my own, but there was no place to anchor. There were two Atlantics; one outside the lighthouse, and one inside me. The one inside me had no string of guiding lights."
- Jeanette Winterson, Lighthousekeeping (via losed)

"You might say, “What a dreadful day,” without realizing that the cold, the wind, and the rain or whatever condition you react to are not dreadful. They are as they are. What is dreadful is your reaction, your inner resistance to it, and the emotion that is created by that resistance."
- Eckhart Tolle (via arabicforprincess)
